Sweet on Each Other

We'll just come out and say it—when it comes to wedding, hostess, or housewarming gifts, this one really takes the cake. Debra Sutts and Bob Birch craft this cake-serving pedestal from locally sourced maple, hand-turning it on a lathe, sanding it down, and engraving it with a message of your choosing. Add in the names of a couple you love and their wedding date, or write in a favorite quote or mantra for a friend moving into a new apartment—the custom options are endless. After the message is engraved, the stand is treated with food-safe mineral oil and beeswax so it's set to go the distance. Yup, it's a winner of a gift, any way you slice it. Handmade in Midland, Michigan.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.


Made in Michigan

Debra Stutts always had a reverence for people who could make beautiful creations with their own two hands. After spending years experimenting with materials like glass, fiber, and silver, she enlisted her life partner/best friend Bob Birch to share the woodworking skills he uses for his home-based building business. Thanks to the extra quality time and Bob’s patient teaching, Debra learned how to craft quality cutting boards and serving pieces. Now the two work together in their Midland, Michigan studio, using local hardwoods to create products that are equal parts functional and pretty to look at, and, above all else, made with love.
